According to local news, the union revealed the reasons behind the strike:
Since the start of the economic crisis, Ogero has been facing a lot of difficulties that led to a surge in malfunctions such as pressure on generators and cables.
On July 1st, telecommunication tariffs increased in Lebanon multiplying Ogero prices by 2.5.
The bill was approved on May 20th as part of the Lebanese government’s economic rescue plan.
Caretaker Minister of Telecommunications Johnny Corm previously stated that the new tariffs will not evoke anger on the streets because “the situation is currently different from the past, and citizens are aware of this.”
However, the Lebanese people still took to social media to express their rage and frustration.
